The Vietnamese War was the most controversial conflict ever entered into by the United States. Military and press photographers, camera-wielding soliders, and civilians all took the opportunity to record the harrowing events of the 1960s and early '70s. NAM: A Photographic History features the images and stories that document this tumultuous era, revealing sides of the war never seen before and shedding new light on this decades old conflict. With its wealth of unforgettable images, this truly comprehensive book provides an unrivalled -- and unflinching -- overview of the Vietnam War.
-- Features more than 700 full-color and black-and-white photographs from a variety of sources, many of which are seen here for the first time
-- Every major theater of conflict is covered extensively, from Laos to Hanoi, from the Tet Offensive and Lam Son 719 to the Battle of Long Tan and Operation Homecoming
-- Informative, indexed commentary provides historical grounding and summarizes the complex events of the period
